The thing is Chris, GPU-Z reports temps rising to 105 degrees celcius and above when I try furmark or Age of Conan! It might be temperature related as I have made sure the 2 connectors are fed into the 295 GTX from different lines. I wish I had the finances to watercool it but, I don't.

This blanking out didn't happen before when I was gaming hours on end....and it only started happening a month ago.

RMA process in HKG is non existent....and I am essentially stuck with a semi dud card....
